The purpose of the manual is to help librarians/information professionals, students, researchers, and health care providers in Africa to find, manage and use health information without reliance on Wikipedia and Google. It is also a useful tool for librarians who have to train their users on how to access and manage information. The manual consists of seven modules. Video clips showing brief presentation of the modules by the authors are available at the NLM U-Tube channel which are accessible via the following links:
